VANCOUVER - July 28, 2011

Indie developer Hothead Games today announced, Kickin Momma, a hilarious new game for iPhone and iPad.

In this game, players control Momma as she aims and drop-kicks her babies into a shiny field of jewels and gems! Once launched into the air, Momma’s helpful children will hit, bounce and ping off pegs like pinballs.

Why do they do this?

So Kickin Momma can have a shiny new necklace, of course. With the right strategy and a bit of luck you will be able to win all the gems to unlock the next level.

The shimmering adventure begins on August 4, 2011.

Kickin Momma’s children will do anything to make her happy, including being kicked into fire, ice and explosive pegs and being booted around 36 fun-filled levels to find all the gems in the game’s 3 dynamic worlds.

Players can also earn Bronze, Silver, or Gold medals upon completion of each level, as well as unlock fashionable accessory items to dress up Momma. Momma can be pimped out with costume items such as kicking boots, a mustache, a crown, and a monocle, while questing for Momma’s most-wanted prize piece: a gem-encrusted necklace.

Game Center encourages masterful Mommas to compete with their friends for achievements or bragging rights to the highest place on the leader board.

Prepare to kick the kids, collect the shiny gems and wear the necklace as everyone’s favorite Kickin Momma.

Players can pick up Kickin Momma on iTunes App Store starting on August 4, 2011 for $1.99 or play it in HD for $3.99.
